The location of the hotel is great. You are steps from the beach and just a few more steps to the Pismo Beach Pier. You are also within walking distance of a number of good quality eating and drinking establishments. The rooms are small and without fancy amenities. They were also clean and well maintained. Honestly, I was a little...

What a great find, lovely family run motel, literally right on the beach, by the pier, and the rooms have big picture windows. Nice modern decor, fridge, microwave & coffee machine. It's easy to walk into town and Wooly's bar/restaurant right next door.

I have stayed at the dolphin Cove a few times. Under new management makes a difference. They are painting rooms and up grading them. Love this place. It is convenient to everything around. I would recommend this place!

I stayed weekday and got a room on the second floor nice ocean view. I was on my way from San Francisco to San Diego returning from a business trip, so it was a nice break. Hotel is very clean and bed is comfortable. Tv screen is tiny, and internet is very slow, but who cares with the ocean view?

Only stay one night but the new owners were very nice and explain they are remodeling each room. The room was very small but the view out the window could not be beat. Just feet from the beach access and public pier. A small walk gets you to great food. Reminded me of those 1950 hotels with the BBQ near...

For the price you can't beat it. You are right on the beach and the rooms are clean! The new owners are very hospitable. I would definitely recommend to check this place out and I will be staying there next time I'm in Pismo.

Small older room. Bed was comfortable enough. Can't beat walking outside your room right down to the beach and a connecting path built on the boardwalk to all the downtown restaurants shops and bar. Locked ourselves out of our room after being at the bar all night. Called the manager at 1 am and she helped us out quickly and...
